There are few things in life that give me as much of a confidence boost as a red lipstick. And if I have to look my glamorous best, nothing better than a hint of shimmer! If you too are a lipstick lover with an affinity for all things red or shimmery, let me draw your attention to the gorgeous Spekta Cosmetics lipsticks! The muses of today’s blog post are the Spekta True Matte Lipstick in the shade Saucy and the Spekta Shimmer Lipstick in the shade MVP. The brand sent these across to me a few days back and I have been playing around with both the shades. So, here is everything you need to know about these Spekta lipsticks along with swatches!

Spekta Cosmetics True Matte Lipstick – Saucy – Review and Swatches
The Spekta True Matte Lipsticks have a long-lasting matte formula enriched with Vitamin E and Shea Butter. It offers a true matte finish and is fairly transfer resistant and light-weight. Since the formula is quite matte, I like to warm the bullets on the back of my hand for a smooth application on the lips. I also prep my lips with a lip balm which I blot off just before applying these lipsticks to make the matte formula even more comfortable. If you have a lot of dryness or texture on your lips then I will recommend scrubbing and moisturizing your lips before applying Spekta True Matte Lipsticks.
These lipsticks provide one stroke pigmentation that lasts for up to 6 hours on the lips depending on how much I eat or drink. They do not transfer a lot but oily food does break them down for obvious reasons.
Last but not the least, all the lipsticks from the brand are vegan and cruelty-free, which is always a plus!
The Spekta True Matte lipsticks come in a variety of shades that are extremely flattering on Indian skin tones. The recent addition to my collection is the shade 102 – Saucy, which the brand describes as a true red. This shade is indeed a true red that will look extremely flattering on all Indian skin tones. It is the perfect red for me that I can pair with both Indian and Western outfits. For shade reference, please note that my skin tone is NC35.
Also, I love that this lipstick does not bleed or transfer easily, which can be a problem with many red lipsticks. Saucy is the perfect pick-me-up lip shade for the days when I need to feel more put together. It goes well with both minimal makeup as well as a full face of glam. Hence, I will highly recommend the Spekta True Matte Lipstick in the shade Saucy if you are on the hunt for a beautiful red lipstick.
This stunning red lipstick is priced at INR 550 and the brand often runs some great sales that make it even more pocket-friendly! Click here to buy the Spekta True Matte Lipstick in the shade Saucy!
Spekta Cosmetics Shimmer Lipstick – MVP – Review and Swatches
One of the bestselling Spekta Lipsticks, the Shimmer Lipstick in the shade MVP is back in stock! This is a sheer lipstick with gold shimmer that can be used on its own or as a topper over other lipsticks. It has a very creamy and moisturizing formula enriched with shea butter, olive butter and castor oil. It glides on the lips with ease and offer a beautiful shimmery effect.
When applied on its own, MVP imparts a sheer gloss to the lips with gold shimmers that shine when the light falls on them. It gives a very unique, three dimensional finish to bare lips which can be an interesting twist to your regular makeup. The formula is comfortable and hydrating, but of course, due to the creamy finish, it is not transfer proof. In fact, when layered on top of the Spekta True Matte Lipsticks, the duo is also more comfortable than the matte lipsticks on their own. So, if you do not like the feel of matte lipsticks on your lips, you can top them up with MVP for more comfort. Additionally, this shimmer lipstick will also make an interesting eye shadow or body highlight, if you are going for a subtle shimmery look.
When layered on top of Saucy, MVP adds a beautiful glossy finish with a hint of shimmer, which I feel is perfect for the upcoming festive season.
This multi-functional shimmer lipstick is also priced at INR 550 and you can get even better deals during sales. Click here to buy the Spekta Shimmer Lipstick in the shade MVP!
